Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol
A communications protocol that allows remote users to connect to corporate intranets over the Internet, through a secure link called a "tunnel." This technology enables users to connect "locally" from anywhere in the world, for the price of a local phone call (to a local ISP)-rather than for the amount of money it would take to dial-up the intranet directly.
